    I'm thinking about smoking a few briskets for alittle lunch treat where i work at, this place i work for helps people with Downs and disabilities in assisted living and employment in a small laundry cleaning service.

    ill talk to management Monday but i dint see any problems with serving smoked meats, maby some one here knows alittle more but Ive seen downs people eating smoked Turkey legs at the state fair last year.

    I think it would be a good thing for you to do, I' sure they would enjoy it alot, never know they may not have ever had smoked meat.

    Just remember this: If you smoke them, the way you are learning, be prepared for an official invite to make them all the time. :)

    Management is all or this idea and no problems with smoked meats [​IMG]
    and Ive got a feeling that they might buy the briskets, now I'm trying figure out how many people a large brisket would feed. i dint remember the weight of the last one i smoked, thinking about getting 3 of the largest briskets i can find and serving 3 slices for each person, dint think ill get into the oz per person.
    any suggestion would help

    I always figure 50% lose of weight after trimming and smoke with brisket, Bun size will play in, small 3" bun gets 4 sammies a #, large 4" and hogies get you 3 sammies per #, do a kwick figure on people/#'s of fresh meat and you will be close. I alway add to the figured amount, useally 1 more butt/brisket just to be safe, left overs ain't a problem.

    Good luck ,they will enjoy it.

    thees no set date yet.
    hell have to decide on how to serve the meat
    3 briskets will be $60 +, small buns would probly make the meat last longer but then theres the extra cost, buns,toppings,condaments, or have 2or3 sides and serve 2 or 3 slices of meat and they can eat it as it is.

    found out that an avg number of people in the building would be around 30.
